Trashtag


Pick up trash and put it in a recycling bag during a hike or a walk!

 

Waste disposal is a must for all nature and mountain lovers, but not all people are aware how long it takes for trash to decompose. Do you know how long it takes for these things to completely rot on the mountain?

Chewing gum: 5 years
Cigarette butts: 2 – 7 years
Handkerchief: 1 – 5 years
Banana peel: 1 – 3 years
Nylon fibers: 60 years
Plastic bag: 120 years
Tin can: 500 years
Plastic bottle: 500 – 1,000 years!

So please, take up the challenge!
